After viewing segments of the long-running television Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) series set in Las Vegas, the class will draw comparisons to real-life scientific experts working in the field of criminal forensic science. Fact-based scientific information will come from various sources, including a Great Courses series, local experts in the subject matter covered, and other valid scientific sources. Although CSI is a fictional series, a unique aspect of the series is that many of the segments are based on crimes that occurred both in and around the Las Vegas area. Don't let that frighten you away! Class discussion and critique is encouraged.
